*Topic: *Planned Termination of NOAA's U.S. DOMSAT Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) Broadcast Service
*Date/Time Issued:* August 7, 2018 1430 UTC
*Product(s) or Data Impacted:* EUMETSAT's Prime Satellite (0 degree) Meteosat-11 MSG HRIT Data
*Date/Time of Initial Impact:* Tentatively mid-November 2018
*Date/Time of Expected End: *Indefinitely
*Details/Specifics of Change:* In coordination with EUMETSAT, NOAA/NESDIS plans to terminate its U.S. DOMSAT direct broadcast of MSG 0 degree Prime satellite data (currently Meteosat-11) in the mid-November 2018 time frame. This service termination is due in large part to obsolete equipment, limited distribution capacity and other factors such as the availability of robust data delivery systems.
In parallel with the U.S. DOMSAT service, NOAA/NESDIS has Meteosat-11 HRIT data available for its authorized users from its Product Distribution and Access (PDA) system (24x7 support) and from STAR FTP services (best effort support). In preparation for the loss of the U.S. DOMSAT MSG broadcast service, 24x7 operational users can access the MSG data from the NESDIS PDA or for non-operational users, from NESDIS STAR.
Please contact "nesdis.data.access@... <mailto:nesdis.data.access@...>" for additional information to acquire MSG 0 degree Prime satellite data (currently Meteosat-11) from the NESDIS PDA or from the NESDIS STAR server. Following further coordination with EUMETSAT, in the early fall 2018 time frame, NESDIS will provide the specific November 2018 date of U.S. DOMSAT MSG service termination.
